ARH-4720 Seminar in Contemporary Art Issues

3 credits

Prerequisite: ARH-3060.

The issues treated vary from semester to semester. The class takes an active role in deciding the relevant issues. Past topics have included public funding for "controversial" art, women's issues in art, art vs. craft and "Is it art?" Students develop critical skills and see their own work in the light of the contemporary scene. At least one field trip to a metropolitan center is scheduled to view contemporary art. (Repeatable for credit but can be counted as an upper-level art history elective only once.)
